Famous quotes containing the words nodes, superficial and/or anterior:

    There are characters which are continually creating collisions and nodes for themselves in dramas which nobody is prepared to act with them. Their susceptibilities will clash against objects that remain innocently quiet.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    What life is best?
    Courts are but only superficial schools
    To dandle fools:
    The rural parts are turned into a den
    Of savage men:
    And where ‘s a city from all vice so free,
    But may be termed the worst of all the three?
    Francis Bacon (1561–1626)

    But now moments surround us
    Like a crowd, some inquisitive faces, some hostile ones,
    Some enigmatic or turned away to an anterior form of time
    Given once and for all. The jetstream inscribes a final flourish
    That melts as it stays.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
